PLEASE HELP: For My 7-year-old Son
Organized by: Crissie Ann
PLEASE PRINT AND POST TO BULLETIN BOARDS TO HELP
June 14, 2016
My name is Crissie Trevino. My son's Father has just recently removed my son, (Dustin) from the state (from the East Coast to UTAH) and presently all the court clerks could tell me is that I needed to obtain an attorney to address the issue and protect my rights.
PLEASE help by contributing ANYTHING you are able, (no matter how small) to my fundraiser and/or by sharing the fundraiser with others. I am working as hard as I possibly can to earn all the funds I possibly can for this, but I can't do it by myself as quickly as needed.
In the states of Virginia and North Carolina they DO NOT appoint an attorney for those in financial need for custody/visitation cases. They only appoint attorneys for jailable ciminal cases.. (Sad, I think)
Hiring an attorney for child custody and visitation cases costs upwards of $4000. This disparity has not allowed for myself, (as well as many others) to gain true access to the courts because of no financial ability to obtain legal representation.
Prior to this upheavel, I tried to represent myself in the North Carolina courts and was extremenly unsuccessful. The judge appointed to our case was not at all forgiving and lenient in allowing me to testify and expected me to manage the court case and conduct the case proceedings as if I were an attorney.
DIRECT DONATIONS WITH NO FEES CAN BE SENT TO: email@example.com viaPaypal. Please include in the note section that it's your donation towards Dustin's fund. ALL donations will be added to both campaign pages. If you wish to remain anonymous please make a note of this as well. thank you.
I'm not stopping here. I have started a facebook page dedicated to the goal of providing assistance to those in need: https://www.facebook.com/Obtaining-Legal-Counsel-for-Child-Custody-Visitation-Cases-For-Low-Income-1023914991017990/
